Make Up Thursday and "Outsmarting Your Stomach" This Holiday Season
It’s always a battle not to overindulge during the holidays. Willpower is in limited supply as we are surrounded by many food choices within our immediate environment. Rather than relying on willpower, we can change the environment so that we don’t overindulge. Below are some tips on changing your eating environment that you can use to immediate effect during the holiday season.
Use Smaller Plates
Make Unhealthy Food Less Accessible
Leave the Evidence
Be the Slowest at the Table
Being mindful with eating is not going to help someone lose weight drastically. However, it might reduce the gradual weight increase that comes over time. By eating slightly less unhealthy food, we can reduce harm that accumulates over time.
This holiday season, try eating with a smaller plate, keeping unhealthy food out of sight, but the evidence in sight, and eat as slowly as possible.
